98.2% of capacity. if we get another big storm system, they're going to have to continue to release that water. now, let's talk about what's happening locally today. you can see the low clouds from high atop mt. hamilton taking out the valley floor. seeing a murky sky over san jose. today we're in the 40s to start. 60s at lunch time, rounding out the day in the mid 60s. record warmth on the way wednesday and thursday. close to 80 degrees by friday. i'm forecasting 80s out in the tri valley on valentine's day with a cooler day on sunday and the next chance of rain late week. we'll keep you updated on the status of all of that. let's check the driver. here is mike. >> great job powering through that altoid, they're curiously strong. looking at northbound 101 in san jose. no surprises. as we look at map, showing you the slow section north at 680, also 87, 285, just before 7:00
we see that burst. over on the peninsula, an earlier crash, northbound 101 at poplar, hit and crush reported. sounds like nothing but paperwork on the shoulder. foster city side of the san mateo bridge, good volume coming across west 92. easy drive. not the winds like yesterday. calmer situation. on the east bay side, the hayward side, we talk about the slower drive, typical drive. tri valley, livermore, sunol, typical. we have a slow drive through walnut creek. maybe one or two crashes. that keeps the walnut creek ber change moving much more smoothly. no surprise, metering lights are on. a call for action after a transgender woman was murdered in san francisco.
stephanie chuang is live in san francisco where a die-in, they're calling it, will take place a few hours from now. >> reporter: good morning. if you're around city hall this afternoon, it will be a dramatic visual of this die-in. a call to the attention that the fear transgender live with day-to-day, especially now with the death of 36-year-old taja dejesus. she was found murdered, stabbed to death on the steps of her apartment in the city's bayview district. that was sunday, february 1st. her suspected killer was found hanged nearby. the death has torn apart taja's mother who is refocusing her pain into spreading her daughter's story. >> everybody's life matters. tran's life mattered as well. if this can save one person. >> people spent hours at san francisco's lgbt center last night to prepare for the demonstration. the center says taja is the fourth known transgender woman of color to be

t the woman known for sneaking on flights has done it again. >> she struck at sjt, and now she's in florida. >> she not only took a flight but stayed at a luxury hotel as well. she faced a judge in the last hour. she was busted at that luxury hotel in a room she didn't pay for near jacksonville. she faces two charges of fraud, one charge of trespassing and remains in custody with bail set at $50,000. her next court appearance is march 5th. they're keeping her in custody until then. she first hit the radar after she jumped a flight without a ticket from mineta san jose and landed at l.a.x. where she was arrested upon landing. she has also been arrested at sky harbor airport in phoenix and nearly a half dozen other times hart trying to sneak on to a plane. according to a sheriff's department in the florida county, this time the 63-year-old started out in
